Stop Trying To Make Edinburgh Happen!

For May, June and July, STTMSH will be bringing you a series of stunning double-previews from sketch comedy’s hottest acts. Catch them as they debut their newest shows, before they head to the Edinburgh Fringe.


Critically acclaimed sketch duo Thünderbards return with their 4nd hour of gag laden comedy, filled with their trademark off-beat jokes, fast paced sketches and overwhelming politeness. Stars of BBC Radio 4’s Sketchorama.

★★★★ (The List) ★★★★ (Telegraph) ★★★★ (Broadway Baby) ★★★★ (ThreeWeeks) ‘Hugely entertaining’ (Daily Mail) ‘Laugh out loud funny’ (The Scotsman) ‘Without question one of the funniest sketch acts on the Fringe’ (GQ) ‘Brilliantly performed and hysterically written’ (The List).


Gein’s Family Giftshop

Like persistent dandruff Gein’s Family Giftshop are back, and they are itching to show you what they’ve come up with. Skin ailments aside, Gein’s Family Giftshop are a multi-award winning 4 strong, 5 star sketch group who’ll be hawking out yet another hour of “fluid and twisted” (The Guardian) sketch comedy, performed with “the kind of sensibility that would unsettle even the darkest League of Gentlemen fan” (The Sunday Times).
